Global Coal Market

V.B. Kondratyev

To provide solid economic growth and to maintain level of economic performance, energy must be readily available, affordable and able to provide a reliable source of power without vulnerability to long-term or short-term disruption. Coal has particular attributes that make a positive contribution to energy security as part of a balanced energy mix. Coal is a truly global industry – it is mined commercially in over 50 countries and is used in over 70 via a well-supplied, competitive international market. Coal market is well-functioning and responsive to change in supply and demand.
